Feast of the Sea’s third Maestro del Mar Chef Challenge took place July 24 at Salt 7 in Delray Beach. Chefs from four Delray Beach restaurants competed, presenting a signature dish that included mahi-mahi. The dishes were created in less than 60 minutes and judged on visual appeal, taste, creativity, execution and overall presentation. Atlantic Grille Executive Chef Adam Gottlieb was the winner. Feast of the Sea will present the final competition as a free general admission seafood festival on Sept. 13 in West Palm Beach. For more information, visit www.feastofthesea.com.
